What is Executive Career and Life Counseling?

Career Coach NJ is an Executive Career and Life Coaching Practice located in Rockaway Township NJ.  

Career Coach NJ provides career coaching with a special emphasis on life coaching.

It is more than interview training and resume building.  I employ a simple, solid, easy-to-use step-by-step system for supporting and equipping individuals who want to find the Right Career Right Now.

Oftentimes people are not sure what coaching is and how it may be helpful to them.  Following I discuss executive and career coaching and mentoring in general that may be useful to you. 

What is Executive Career Coaching?

Professional Career Coaching is a unique and rapidly growing profession. Coaches follow a process that allows clients to set and achieve specific goals and address conditions or transitions that are happening in their lives right now.  Coaching is a profession with a board of governors, guidelines, standards of conduct, and a code of ethics. 

The most powerful and successful people on the planet work with coaches to ensure continued success, however professional coaching is accessible to everyone at every stage of life.

How does the Executive Career Coaching process work?

Through coaching you will discover and realize your dreams.  You learn to fulfill your potential by connecting your inner purpose and passion to your pragmatic objectives to create exceptional results.   

Coaching is based on the premise that you already possess the answers to all the questions that can be asked about you and your life.  Professionally trained coaches follow a process that involves simply asking the right questions to help you by:

·         Examining what is going on in your career right now

·         Deciding how you want your career to look and feel

·         Establishing a vision and specific measurable goals and objectives to make this reality

·         Discovering what obstacles or challenges exist and devising pragmatic strategies for addressing these

·         Setting in motion a course of action to make your career be what you want it to be.

·         Monitoring your progress and revising your plan as necessary

·         Celebrating your successes

People who work with a coach get powerful, measurable, and oftentimes extraordinary results that last.  The skills they develop last a lifetime and will be accessible at any point in the future.

Why try coaching?

“Our chief want in life is somebody who will make us do what we can.”                                                                                                                    Ralph Waldo Emerson

·         Coaching provides direction, a road map for success.

·         Coaching helps you understand who you are, appreciate why you are unique and name your primary purpose in life, specifically in work.  My coaching process enhances creativity and fosters innovation. 

·         Coaching is motivational and creates momentum.  You create a vision of your ideal life and in so doing you uncover how it can actually become reality.

·         You develop a strategy and you discover what it will take to get what you want. 

·         You identify and remove barriers to growth in yourself and your environment. 

·         You collaborate with a nonjudgmental person who will encourage honest conversation about daily challenges so you can build the career and identify the company that will attract outstanding results.  

What is it like to work with me? 

I employ a coaching method called Core Energy Coaching that promotes excellent results in any environment. It supports your desire to make a contribution through work, the organizations you belong to, and in the world of family, friends, and associates.  The Right Career Right Now means to contribute mightily, to engender allegiance and trust among peers and associates, and to develop the ‘know, like, and trust’ factor that is so essential to career development.  It changes and shifts attitudes so you are passionate and dedicated to achieving results. 

My job is to help you be the very best you can be and inspire and champion you.  I get you to do things beyond what you thought you could do, and help you come from a place of confidence.  I challenge you to focus time on what you want to do and on solutions.  You design a plan based on your agenda.  Coaching takes what’s inside and translates it into outer goals that you accomplish step-by-step.

I work one-on-one, in-person, via Skype or telephone, and in small groups in a confidential manner to help you gain direction, eliminate self-imposed limitations, understand the rules of career planning and job search process, and increase self-confidence so you can better energize your world and those around you. 

We work on bringing your personal values and your distinctive message to the surface to serve as a foundation for decision making.  You learn to “think outside the box” in terms of your career search, and to operate with a sense of purpose in everything you do.  You become aware of where you are, where you want to go, and how to get there.  You acquire skills to practice for the rest of your life. 

We start with a free consultation to assess our level of compatibility and the potential for success.  Coaching is like any other relationship in that an initial level of compatibility and chemistry ideally exist.  Very quickly, a successful coaching relationship can become a catalyst for tremendous growth and personal and professional transformation.

In addition to an initial consultation, I then provide a computerized leadership and career assessment to scientifically establish the baseline and discover your areas of potential growth.  The assessment is optional. For more information go to  

We follow the assessment by developing and implementing a specific program for growth based on the results and your personal agenda.  CCNJ provides access in between coaching sessions via phone or email.  When you have a challenge in the moment you have access to the objective voice you need. 

Why can’t I just do this myself?

Actually, you can.  The real question is, how does the process and result improve if I hire a coach?  In working with Career Coach NJ you will find that in addition to the basic coaching model you will:

·         Begin to infuse your unique purpose and passion into every facet of your career

·         Learn key skills which will make you thrive including emotional intelligence, energetic leadership, vibrant communication, relationship building, time management and influencing others

·         Learn how to play the career game bigger and experience a high level of engagement and motivation

·         Develop a viable marketing presence aka personal brand to distinguish you from your competition

·         Control a high anxiety process and feel valid again

·         Find the Right Career Right Now

Everyone is a leader—either by choice or by default.
Whenever you interact with anyone else (and yourself) you are leading.
So the question is not “Will you lead?” but rather “How well will you lead?”
